So, Meeghan @ Meeghan Reads gave us this final prompt for September and you can see her choices here. I definitely love this idea, because you DO get those standalone books that you read and then really want there to be a sequel for! Or maybe the author is taking foreverrrrr to finish the book (LOOKING AT YOU, ROTHFUSS) and you just wanna READ THE BOOK.
Okay, enough shouting. Let’s go! As usual, GR – Goodreads. SG – The Storygraph.
The Doors of Stone by Patrick Rothfuss (GR/SG) – Every time I see this around on Goodreads or maybe the first or second book I just want to cry. I enjoyed the series so so much and it’s like been what, over 5 years now since we’ve been promised a 3rd book? I barely remember what happened previously but I know I really want to read it!
So I suppose we’ll sit and wait for ANY news of this.
Six of Crows #3 by Leigh Bardugo (GR/SG) – SURE, Crooked Kingdom tore my heart in two. But I would happily give my heart AGAIN to Bardugo so she can rip it all once again. She’s said Six of Crows will be coming in the near future or soon or something down the line. And I will
happily sadly wait for it.
House of Hollow by Krystal Sutherland (GR/SG) – Seventeen-year-old Iris Hollow has always been strange. Something happened to her and her two older sisters when they were children, something they can’t quite remember but that left each of them with an identical half-moon scar at the base of their throats.
Iris has spent most of her teenage years trying to avoid the weirdness that sticks to her like tar. But when her eldest sister, Grey, goes missing under suspicious circumstances, Iris learns just how weird her life can get: horned men start shadowing her, a corpse falls out of her sister’s ceiling, and ugly, impossible memories start to twist their way to the forefront of her mind.
As Iris retraces Grey’s last known footsteps and follows the increasingly bizarre trail of breadcrumbs she left behind, it becomes apparent that the only way to save her sister is to decipher the mystery of what happened to them as children.
The closer Iris gets to the truth, the closer she comes to understanding that the answer is dark and dangerous – and that Grey has been keeping a terrible secret from her for years.
Yes, I’m mentioning this book again. That’s because it’s amazing and needs to be mentioned more. So, obviously no spoilers, but the end of the book does leave you questioning a whole bunch. And I want answers in the form of a sequel! Focused on the sisters in the aftermath of the ending. A few time jumps! Figuring out more (I can’t say anything else because I don’t want to spoil anything!). I just want more. I want everything.
The Foxhole Court by Nora Sakavic (GR/SG) – Neil Josten is the newest addition to the Palmetto State University Exy team. He’s short, he’s fast, he’s got a ton of potential—and he’s the runaway son of the murderous crime lord known as The Butcher.
Signing a contract with the PSU Foxes is the last thing a guy like Neil should do. The team is high profile and he doesn’t need sports crews broadcasting pictures of his face around the nation. His lies will hold up only so long under this kind of scrutiny and the truth will get him killed.
But Neil’s not the only one with secrets on the team. One of Neil’s new teammates is a friend from his old life, and Neil can’t walk away from him a second time. Neil has survived the last eight years by running. Maybe he’s finally found someone and something worth fighting for.
YES, this is a completed trilogy and I’ve already reread it this year. But I instantly missed it after I finished the third book. I just want more of the team and Andreil and no I will not reread it again this year, please @ DB. You have a million other things to do. I just want to go back into the world and be with the characters.
Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston (GR/SG) –First Son Alex Claremont-Diaz is the closest thing to a prince this side of the Atlantic. With his intrepid sister and the Veep’s genius granddaughter, they’re the White House Trio, a beautiful millennial marketing strategy for his mother, President Ellen Claremont. International socialite duties do have downsides—namely, when photos of a confrontation with his longtime nemesis Prince Henry at a royal wedding leak to the tabloids and threaten American/British relations. The plan for damage control: staging a fake friendship between the First Son and the Prince.
As President Claremont kicks off her reelection bid, Alex finds himself hurtling into a secret relationship with Henry that could derail the campaign and upend two nations. What is worth the sacrifice? How do you do all the good you can do? And, most importantly, how will history remember you?
So, this will finally be a movie next year!!! And I think it’s a perfect time to bring out a sequel! Either continuing to focus on Alex and Henry or focusing on other side characters. It’s probably time I reread the book (mostly because I haven’t actually reviewed it yet).
Most of these books here I just want to live in the world 😅 like, just leave me in the world, I’m good, I’m fine. Hopefully, especially if it’s a fantasy read 😂
What are some sequels you’ll love to get your little hands on? Which worlds do you just want to just live in? Come tell me down below!
